Look, we’ll tune into pretty much anything starring Martin Freeman—bonus points if it’s a horror movie that looks refreshingly smart and scary, despite having a relatively staid title: Ghost Stories.


Ghost Stories is about a professor (Andy Nyman, who also co-directs with Jeremy Dyson; the script’s based on their long-running stage play) whose skeptical outlook on the supernatural begins to crumble when he begins investigating a trio of what appear to be real hauntings. Freeman’s character, one of the people the professor meets on his would-be debunking quest, has a decidedly sinister gleam in his eye. It’s not his usual look, but it’s a good one.

Ghost Stories, which also stars Paul Whitehouse and Alex Lawther, is out this April.

For British supernatural stories, I’d quite like to see the Peter Grant series which starts with the Rivers of London.
